know they got smashed glass all over them the skin and everything this show of victims before giving its whole drinks as a nation which has never suffered at the hands of terrorists before he says norwegians just didn't know how to react. alarms from. buildings. people told things gaming rolling on this man's wife suffered severe short when their windows were blown out by the blast but he says they're lucky to be alone he's thoughts go out to the many young victims of the second time i think about. to shoot their keep. that. is close to the two atrocities produced many acts of terrorism but to those sensors on the walls worst mass shooting. experts say there's also
6:03 pm
a closing angle to the attacks were allowed to happen in the first place and get the truth or ignore dozens of hate messages from suspect anders behring breivik you haven't really been prepared for our right wing extremism brave expressed fury at the government's open door policy on immigration blogs and twitter feeds. the shootings may reflect growing national look position to fully immigration policies the political establishment of more of a are relative of the battle of people but they've been areas where there are simply no immigrants for people in northern the being pushed out of places they used to live livin on the soles of their drop stuff are in jeopardy muslims claim there's disappointment that the killer turned out to be ones they want this guy to be muslim or how muslim you know. it's for them it's a little bit strange because he's in the region so they talk too much about islam
6:04 pm
and about us. it is not good norwegians are said to be fed up with the brunt of what's been dubbed radical liberalism it's the country's multicultural policies to turn the government against his own but in no way the far right sentiment. wider than norwegians are ready to admit and there's a polite and respectful attitude towards that kind of. mainstream media but the reality is that fifty percent of new winton's against multiculturalism is people who try to pick up the pieces and bring meaning to these twin the. relations between communities some expect the crackdown by police on the growing far right movement while the spear this will only fuel resentment against europe's muslims victims of beginning to piece spoke together the shouts of lawyers but the experts warn this might not be the last such a time as the perceived failure of
6:05 pm
a multicultural society grows the new bush will see. for more analysis on this tragedy we go live to chicago where margaret bogan a friend e.c.m. partner joins us live thanks for joining us here on our team now anders behring breivik claims it was a quote necessary attack on society and immigration policy do you think we're going to see more of these right wing attacks in the future yeah i absolutely think we will eventually in the next ten years i think we're really highlighting it is you're changing and you're been changing for a while but it's been relatively economically stable influx integrated so you know if you're across the border in norway in particular have a pretty you know d.c. in two thousand to two thousand and ten what you're seeing now is with a decrease in living standards with you know a lot more confusion particularly in the lower classes about job security you're going to see a lot more focus on immigration so i don't blame immigrants maybe you're going to
6:06 pm
see you know pretty strong extremism. both ends of the spectrum a big you're going to see a lot more islamic extremism and i think you're going to see a lot more break where the extremism particularly in this in any in countries and speaking of muslims what effect do you think the growth of the muslim populations across europe will change the makeup of political makeup of these countries and you think that may lead to social or people well you know looking at more ways. little more broadly in the scandinavian areas i think what you're going to see is a strong swing you know rightward there's typically if we were you know politically and just individually in almost any given time of stress it's not the united states it's you thousand left and i don't think europe is going to be any different you know people are a lot more willing to accept you know different types of neighbors people who don't look like you know we kids going to their school when times are good people tend to be a lot more open minded unfortunately the next ten years i think economically is going to be very hard on europe you know the world at least by that particular of the
6:07 pm
euro and i think you're going to see a lot more people voting rights were as you did in the last ten years now despite the attacker being norwegian the country has tightened its border controls do you think there's any signal or a sign of a willingness to pile blame on immigrants absolutely i think that the first place most people go in times of economic stress political staff and definitely the ball i think that this did you know if you look at if you look at norway particularly like i said and you're on the way broadly i think what this did is it really highlighted the immigrant i don't want to call it a problem i want to call it you know immigrant reality huge influx of immigrants coming into norway and you're oddly you know most mostly in the bottom most of norwegians probably didn't know that i was twenty five percent immigrant but we're friday they do a lot more statistics now i think you're going to see you know people saying well gosh this guy was crazy but we have another pretty serious. problems without
6:08 pm
canonizing then i think you will see a lot of you know people tend to be are more right wing and right we definitely think yeah clearly don't shoot children but he was he trying to add one and highlighting the politics here do you think there will be a political impact within norway following these attacks do you think that centrist or left wing parties may take a small step to the right in the light of this absolutely they have to look the prime minister or leave the labor party generally did a great job you know comforting the nation those twenty four hours were hacked you know terrifying were my kids going to be ok did a great job of comforting comforting the nation here's the issue with people hearing more a great word with a leader pretty good we have to do with norway is you know we don't think that the extent concern to people who are nervous about the immigrant population you know this whole lot some of the more extreme groups you know these extreme views if that
6:09 pm
makes sense and adopt them into their own platform and facebook you know average jokey voter we understand your concerns about this issue but we think norway has made it great interaction here is why so instead of managing and you know governing their theory they have to adopt some of those you know who are going to jingle with stick policies but also who presents you know a more positive view of norway or now generally in europe there seems to be an increasing tide of leaders like merkel and david cameron coming out against the concept of multiculturalism but what's the alternative to multiculturalism i actually agree with them i think multiculturalism is dead but i don't think that means that european countries are going to go back to looking like the european countries of the twentieth century i think what is actually going to do is you know much like the internet are and i include every nation in that phrase is going to be called a global society so when you say multiculturalism do you think you know this patchwork
6:10 pm
quilt. different you know it's like. people i actually think you know there's going to be a. day and. thoughts and philosophies going i'm not on the europe but in the united states and really around the world so you know they have been a free people are interpreted yeah i think the world becoming more global and yeah that's right. and finally one more question i'd like to sneak in here what do you think the muslim community because there is a sizable like you said twenty five percent immigrants when you think the muslim community of oslo what do you think their next best move on their side will be in order to help bring the nation to a healing place well obviously you know much like you saw the united states post you know some time or a lot and then the thing that interested you actually take it as a percentage of population the attacks in norway on friday were as a percentage twice as bad as the one in the united states so this is certainly
6:11 pm
a large loan to the country and i think what they need to do like a mile a lot of moderate. seeds to temper a lot and is they need to issue statements they need to you know put a couple being on this look we are at the against terrorism as you are and well he you know it was trying to tap into trying to make us seem like outsiders we are one against terror really are one against violence we want our kids and everybody. we want to be your neighbor want to you know during your groups we're all region today that you know i think really the first step in helping fuel the country don't you know you don't mean isolate it from this maybe they were a tragedy to all right margaret buggery from a.c.m. partners in chicago thanks very much for your time think the. crowds of protesters have converged on the spanish capital madrid after marching from across the country they're angry at the soaring unemployment and the higher the highest in the
6:12 pm
eurozone and i think government's failure to tackle the country's recession are to go is in the center of the capital where demonstrators have set up camp. spain has one of the highest unemployment rates in the eurozone in fact it has the highest unemployment rates among the youth in the european union and of course this has resulted in thousands upon thousands of young people who cannot find a job in their home country are taking matters into their own hands and protesting literally for days and days on end and that's the process time started on the main on may fifteenth of this year and this is why the movement has multi thousand people who've been despoiled fifteen m. movement so this particular time they have put out a promise from several cities in fact more than a hundred cities from all across spain that have walked here by foot a lot of them about the walk here in order to come here to the very center of the green the so-called plumbers zero in order to press their indignation in the cold the margins of indignation at what the government is literally not doing to help
6:13 pm
the situation in the country there's thousands of people i mean the i use you can see they're gathering all around me because for them this is a big deal they're trying to get all the attention that they can because they believe that their government is focusing instead on what the i.m.f. the w o and the world bank are doing and not paying attention to the people in spain they demand more jobs in fact they're saying it's not about the high pensions and it's not so much about the social benefits it's about simply getting a job in the very country they believe that if they take matters into their own hands that they can do something they have actually set up camp right here in the middle of one of those so they have been here for days and they think that if they continue to push their opinion peacefully they will reach their desired goal they have to remember that all of this is happening right when right when the situation is in some other group in countries like in the neighboring portugal or in greece is that anything is basically everything but dire greece has received another be
6:14 pm
allowed but a lot of critics are saying that that is not going to help the country in any way a portugal has been downgraded by several agencies to have this. recently has been blacklisted for the economic woes and the famous don't want their country to go down the drain so there again like i said before they're calling on the government to stop talking to focus on the matters in the country and to actually help the people in the country and not pay attention to what the big european big heads are hoping or trying it to pretend as if they are doing and that is the opinion off people who have surrounded me right gary literally tens of thousands of people from all across the state and this is their main goal to take matters into their own into their own hands and to help the country if nobody else will help it one hundred nine billion euro bellowed for greece was agreed after it was approved after it approved austerity severe austerity measures sending thousands back to the streets to protest there the rescue will also involve lowering interest rates on
6:15 pm
greek debt and the extending the of the repayment period financial analyst max kaiser though things alone we plunge people deeper into trouble. it increases the amount of debt it increases the amount of debt in the eurozone it is increased of the amount of debt in grace so this is a plan cooked up by bankers to repackage risa characterize. debt that's what they do and it crowds out the real economy so if they think that this is going to help the economy grow their way to a position of paying off this debt or paying the interest on the debt that's not going to happen because by giving bankers more dead to control the productive part of the economy you are eliminating that part of the economy's ability to pay off this debt so the banking cancer is just becoming worse in the eurozone and worse in greece not the banks there but not bailing out the workers or the people who are on the ground so to speak that bailing out european banks they're bailing out wall street banks they're bailing out other banks and so doing they're increasing the
6:16 pm
debt load so it's making the situation much worse and they're crowding out any ability for the work workers in greece to generate enough income to pay off this debt this is consigning the population to debt servitude. max kaiser they're talking about what the e.u. rescue package may mean for the greek people will stay with us here on r t still ahead this hour funding the revolt as germany prepares to send millions of euros to libyan rebels how will you stop once. nato starts handing over control of afghan provinces to local security forces but many question if they're up the job. this week the phone hacking and police bribery scandal was taken to the british parliament rupert murdoch and his son james and former u.k. c.e.o. rebecca brooks were all grilled by british lawmakers for several hours trios said
6:17 pm
that they were deeply sorry for what happened but new allegations have emerged that news international chairman james murdoch misled m.p.'s by saying he was unaware of the true extent of illicit phone tapping by his company's reporters the murdoch could now face legal challenges in the u.s. over claims the voice mails of nine eleven victims were also targeted meanwhile meanwhile britain's hacking scandal appears to be spreading beyond the murdoch empire with claims the sunday mirror tabloid also bugged celebrities voicemail messages parties got h.q. on reports that critics believe the issue is just the tip of the iceberg in a society that may no longer value individual privacy. as the scandal over phone hacking by the murdoch media empire rages on public and political fury has mainly focused on ruthless tabloids out of control prepared to invade people's private lives and even the dad to get the story but some say in this day and age the whole concept of privacy is falling apart and in the u.s.
6:18 pm
more rapidly than elsewhere every time you tap on your cell or click on or use your mail service everybody's sort of just clicks through that you agree to our terms and conditions well those terms and conditions are very very heavily weighted against you and your private. interesting we see breaches of privacy happening by corporations all across america all across the world really in every sector surveillance is rampant but really this is all a microcosm the biggest surveil are all which is the state there's little americans can do with the state having sweeping access to their private information access that followed the nine eleven terrorist attacks under a new law known as the patriot act asana law his privacy was taken away from him in two thousand and two when he was detained by the f.b.i. for absolutely no reason he says and scrutinized for months without charge he's response for nine years he has voluntarily documented nearly every waking hour of
6:19 pm
his life on the web he has subsequently even turned it into a form of art see all the toilets that i've used so you know that over here for example you know that on sunday november twenty fourth of two thousand and seven i've used this toilet i went grocery shopping at safeway over there on october seventeenth i got gas over here he posts copies of every debit card transaction so you can see what he bought where and when a g.p.s. device in his pocket reports his realtime physical location on a map and this is the shot he took on his way to our studio which was immediately uploaded on his website hasan says his extraordinary abandonment of his own privacy stems from the ignorance of the authorities but in the fear they decided well that guy looks a little different so he must be arab and if he's arab then he must have explosives everyone knows that that's the logic we're operating we we realize how ridiculous that logic sounds but when your country when your own country takes that on as the
6:20 pm
basis for national policy. ignorance as the basis of national policy is a pretty scary situation. and that's how i got caught up in it for haasan privacy has become a rally of the past and he says he's not surprised that journalists or anyone else really would use the same surveillance tactics as the state in that sense it might be of no surprise that the chief architect of the patriot act the lawyer who put it together happens to be one of murdoch's hand-picked used for board directors served as assistant attorney general in the bush administration and was described by some as the purveyor of the most sweeping curtailment of freedom in the u.s. since the mccarthy era at a time when corporations and the government can easily hack into people's private lives it doesn't come as a surprise when for example social networks give your personal information to at companies or when other industries leave bob breaching people buy those things in
6:21 pm
the u.s. it's so widespread and people have gotten so used to it that rupert murdoch seems to be perfect art of the system rather than some special bill and with corporation has been undertaking some unique all lawful practices because here in america they are not so unique i'm going to check our reporting from washington r.t. . germany says it will lend libya's rebels one hundred million euros for civilian and humanitarian purposes berlin oppose the western military intervention in the country but promised to help oust colonel gadhafi through peaceful measures christophe forrestal a government consultant in germany says there is no guarantees the funds will be used for peaceful and. it is really a big question what this money is being used for first of all who controls that then next has nato ever cared for the civilian population in libya i don't think so . you know a group of countries bombing libya and using uranium weapons that of course is
6:22 pm
a group of countries not caring for the civilian population i see definitely another point here i see that the important part town of brega which is hotly debated among the rebels and the government as who owns this town now might be a question where some of this money might be used in fact to buy the tribes to get the town into the hands of the rebels i think that's the question here quite importantly right now to use that money i doubt what is official language of the german government. emergency services have recovered more bodies from the russian pleasure boat that sank in the volga river two weeks ago killing one hundred twenty people the wrecked cruiser was lifted from the bottom and towed to shallow waters the task is now to drain the hole so investigators can examine the vessel in detail to figure out the cause of the tragedy the search continues for two others whose

6:25 pm
staying in fact their presence is becoming the main catalyst for the armed insurgency not only the taliban but maybe one hundred forty armed groups and they can't leave either because if they leave there will be a perception that the us and nato were defeated by an armed insurgency but this dilemma must be solved some way so ultimately the united states cannot prevail the assassination of karzai as brother and his inner circle shows that the edifice of the karzai regime necessary at least to give an afghan face to the nato occupation that itself is now crumbling these armed attacks these assassination attempts are designed to create panic and i think in all likelihood they are creating panic within the very heart the foundation of the karzai government the u.s. is losing ground steadily at spending one hundred twenty billion dollars a year that's an increasing amount from a treasury that's already drained based on huge budget deficits here the number of casualties on the afghan and american side is is increasing not decreasing and yet
6:26 pm
they're no closer to victory in fact they're losing control of the country and the government that they sponsor is is in fact in danger of crime when i would say the us hasn't gained anything i think the us is losing ground it's spite of what david petraeus and the obama administration say this is a bad situation possibly a catastrophe for the united states you're back with a recap of the week's top stories in just a few moments stay with us here on our. welcome
